All the affected encrypted files end with extension bfc5.

 

Any files that are encrypted with Cerber v4x/v5x will be renamed (encrypted) with 10 random characters followed by a random 4 character hexadecimal extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename (i.e. 1xQHJgozZM.b71c, 0ezTpYXxVn.b6d3, n3yJiVM0Nn.a60d) and leave files (ransom notes) named README.hta, README.html, _HEJDDP_README_.hta, _READ_THIS_FILE_<random hexadecimal>.html (i.e _5M6C2B8.html), _HELP_HELP_HELP_<random hexadecimal>.hta (i.e _5M6C2B8.hta) as explained here. Any files that are encrypted with Cerber v5x will also include a few new changes as explained here.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic victims you can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.

 

Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.

Thanks
